What can you grow in a hydroponic garden?

The short answer is that you can grow anything hydroponically! However, depending on your plant you may have to alter a few things in your setup.

The biggest limitation to what you can grow is the size of the plant you’re growing. In theory, you could grow a full-sized tree in a hydroponic set-up, but it would require a large quantity of light and hydroponic nutrients to keep it alive. This financial cost would limit the feasibility of the project and generally deters most people from trying it out.

For a benchtop hydroponic unit such as the Indoor Smart Garden, you’ll want to look at a moderate-sized plant, preferably one that is wider rather than tall. If you’re using an Indoor Smart Garden our suggestion would be one of the following;

  • Basil
  • Coriander
  • Mint
  • Dill
  • Sage
  • Chives
  • Strawberry

You could also choose most items from our wide range of seeds.

If you’re working with a slightly larger unit, such as the XL Indoor Smart Garden or the Eco Kitchen then you can grow some slightly larger plants. These include;

  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Chard/silverbeet
  • Chinese broccoli

If you’re using bigger units than these, or your own home setup, the possibilities are endless! A small amount of trial and error is involved but after a few attempts, you will get the hang of it and be able to grow whatever you like!

Hello, I could not see the XL Indoor Smart Garden on your website so I have bought the Indoor Smart Garden. When will you get stock for it? What is the price and dimension of the XL set?
I have excluded the grow light that is on pre-order. How wide can the clip open up and how long is the flat part of the clip? I wanted to see if it can fit into a handle opening before clipping onto the bench.
